New Technique Doubles the Distance of Optical Fiber Communications

New Technique Doubles the Distance of Optical Fiber Communications

A new way to process fiber optic signals has been demonstrated by UCL researchers, which could double the distance at which data travels error-free through transatlantic sub-marine cables. (CREDIT: Groman123) The new method has the potential to reduce the costs of long-distance optical fiber communications as signals wouldn’t need to be electronically boosted on their […]
